What on Earth is a Dedicated IP Address?
Good question! While we hate to bore you with all the tech stuff, here goes:
IP stands for Internet Protocol and it’s a unique address given to each computer that’s connected to the Internet.
Sharing is Not Always Caring
You wouldn’t share a ride with a raving lunatic, so you may not want to share your IP address with some of the online nasties out there.
With a shared IP address, you share a single address with hundreds, if not thousands, of websites on a web server. It’s like the raving lunatic analogy! With a dedicated IP address, you get your own (dedicated) IP address.
One Bad Egg and Everything Smells Rotten
You’re cruising along with a shared IP address and then, one fateful day, someone’s bad email account means everyone on that IP address is blacklisted. A blacklist is a list of IP addresses and domains that are suspected of sending spam or other email abuses.
If an IP address is blacklisted, then an email provider or ISP will not accept emails from that address. Don’t risk your good reputation. Get a dedicated IP now!
